North Riding is a residential area of Randburg which, in turn, is part of Johannesburg. The area used to be known for its stables and equestrian pursuits but it is now a busy residential area.

The area got its name from one of the subdivisions of Yorkshire, England, going back hundreds of years.

North Riding is serviced by two main roads; Witkoppen Road and Malibongwe Drive. The Dome concert venue is nearby.
